Gaze your eyes upon the ultimate metal monster! Steinberger - State of the Instrument.
With its devilish looks, 28-5/8 inch scale length, EMG humbuckers and equipped bridge, there is no other guitar that can howl or has the low-end crunch like the new Steinberger Synapse Demon TranScale. Play it open and it's a baritone, roll the built-in capo up a couple of frets and it's a normal 25-1/2 inch guitar.
Designed by Ned Steinberger, the Demon is a HYBRID instrument combining the strength, rigidity and clarity of graphite with the warmth of wood. At the heart of every Synapse is the Cybrosonic neck featuring patented graphite U-channel with adjustable truss rod uniquely crafted into a 3-piece, hard maple neck. Steinberger has then added a smooth and durable phenolic fingerboard and a neck-thru body design to create an instrument with distinctive tonal clarity, sustain, pop and response as well as ultimate stability.
Add to that, a piezo equipped bridge with one piece aluminum saddle combined with low impedance EMG USA humbuckers and you've got an instrument with infinite tonal possibilities and increased frequency response. Isolate the piezo bridge to get simmering acoustic-like tones. Turn up the EMG's and you’ve got classic, high output humbuckers.
Other features include a zero fret for improved intonation, the new Steinberger Combo headpiece to allow for the use of DoubleBall and single ball strings and the patented Direct-Drive double-ball bridge with 40:1 tuners for tuning ease, accuracy and stability that only a Steinberger can provide. With Steinberger, you can change strings in seconds, tune up once and not have to tune again until you change strings again.
The Demon comes with a premium, padded gigbag, and the Synapse Demon’s headless design is compact and capable of fitting into tight places including most overhead airplane bins. Put it all together and you’ve got a guitar of unequalled performance, comfort and flexibility.
What's a Steinberger?
The Steinberger story began in 1979, when Ned Steinberger designed the award winning L-2, a one piece headless bass made entirely of carbon-graphite composite material. Today, Steinberger carries forth Ned's vision with a uniquely innovative offering of guitars and basses.
